I do labour history, wikipedia and cow clickers. I also do "internet culture."

comment What is the earliest known account of the modern military salute?
US Military manuals of Drill and Ceremony aren't typically respected as high quality secondary sources. Particularly when they're repeating unattributed myth and playing the "some Xs Y" game.

comment Why weren't aircraft carriers utilized during D-day?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a request for counterfactual speculation.

This answer could be improved by avoiding unnecessary national specificity.

Invites speculation, and the bounty prevents closure.

comment Why did the communist party lose in Telangana in India's first general elections?
This answer could be improved by resolving the lack of citation; and, by arguing fully or citing the causative argument that armed force and anti-democratic actions result in reduced electoral outcomes.

comment Has the USA ever taken unilateral military action?
The question is very poorly researched, and could benefit from engaging with the theories of sovereignty and government that exist.

comment Was the enclosure responsible for the supply of factory workers in 18th and 19th Century England?
I'm sorry, but if you're going to deny historical methodology then there are other stack exchanges suitable for your speculation.

Tronti, Bologna, Marx and Engels in particular The Length of the Working Day; Harry Braverman (of course), but also Dunayevskaya and CLR James. This is a very real literature, and it is a well argued account. Thompson on the Frame knitters even. Saying it ain't so is not going to invalidate 170 years of scholarship on this point. Other opinions, are of course, acceptable in their scholarships.

@LennartRegebro restating the question in the body reduces the value of the question.

I commend to you the extensive literature precisely on Thompson's work. Marx's primary sources were the parliamentary reports, and his discussion of factory sociology is held in high regard even in conservative analyses of his work. I commend reading on this topic to you.

The corn laws were abolished when? The peak of the enclosures was when? There's some really basic research missing behind this question. It also doesn't account for Henrician or Elizabethan enclosure.

"Corn laws." The postulate in the question is false.
